Don't kill the messenger. Just noticed the article up on Engadget this morning. Thought I pass it along, after checking to make sure there is no current thread about it...

OH S**T!!

BTW

The Bloomberg article has a lot more ELOP insights.

I gave Elop the benefit of the doubt until this morning.

Every time they give him a microphone he basically says "our products suck so hard! we can't do anything right! By the way, we're releasing a windows phone". The tech blogs eat this up, stocks fall. As the head of a company trying to make a profit, this makes no sense.

I know he is CEO and all, but they probably shouldn't let him speak at conferences.

The article makes it look as if MeeGo was so full of bugs (or lacking features) back in January that they would not be able to launch more than 3 MeeGo powered devices until 2014.

I don't really understand this. It just doesn't make sense: Are they talking about MeeGo proper or Harmattan?
If Harmattan: How can they release a (hopefully working) product this year if it's so 'unfinished'?
If MeeGo proper: Why not stick to the Harmattan-route then and slowly build it closer towards MeeGo proper until it is ready?

This is just another ridiculous sh*t from Engadget, I don't believe a word of it.

Or if it's true, then Nokia's leadership is indeed incompetent.

Go read the article it refers to, that one is actually a fairly good read.

I agree this 3 device comment sounds like utterly nonsensical bs.

Once you get 1 out the next one can be very shortly behind it.

Ridiculous sh*t or not, it's not from Engadget, it's from Bloomberg Businessweek.
